BIJOU has been giving us g-house bangers this entire year, but the Phoenix native’s latest release is showing us something more versatile. Earlier this month, BIJOU released “Crown” featuring Tyler Graves and you’re definitely gonna want to add this house hit to your playlist.
“Crown” starts off with Tyler Graves’ ethereal vocals and as lush pads build-up, we begin to hear a new type of drop from BIJOU. The song is not BIJOU’s usual g-house track and the vocal-chops give off a trap vibe that’s accompanied alongside house percussion and electro-pop plucks. The g-house bass becomes the main focus of the drop and adds funk that compliments Tyler Graves’ vocals. Even though the song is more melodic than BIJOU’s other music, he does a great job maintaining the energy and “Crown” will definitely get people out of their seats and onto the dancefloor. We can only hope that BIJOU continues to release music like this one because it’s in songs like these that we really hear how talented and versatile of a producer he can be.
Of the track, BIJOU said,
This song is one where I Finally feel like I’ve been able to show every side of my myself in one composition. From the G house bass all the way to the melodic aspects of the record, I really feel like this is a true representation of myself not only as an artist but a person as well. It was a team effort as my good friend Kaleena Zanders (who also co wrote the vocal) introduced me to Tyler who happened to be a Phoenix native like myself! We immediately vibed on this tune and after a few trips back and forth between Phoenix and La, we have what you are hearing today. Shoutout to EVERYONE who played a role in this tune, Im so stoked to finally get this out!
In addition to the song’s release, BIJOU also announced a tour with support from Blossom, Gerry Gonza, DLMT, and Masteria. Lucky for us, the Crown tour stops in Arizona this weekend at Goldrush at Rawhide Event Center (tickets available here).
